Altered Book

Wow! Has it really been almost a year since I posted anything on my blog?!? I don’t know how anyone manages to blog on any kind of regular basis. With a full-time job and so many other things to do- i’m lucky to have time and energy to do any art, much less blog about it. Hopefully I can do better now since I find myself with a fair amount of extra time I used to devote to other things.

On to the show!

I got this book at my former place of work from a stack of free publications-this one being all about some of the best businesses in Charlotte. Stay tuned and you will see a page devoted to my new employer!
This is the cover:altered book 1altered book2Here is the first two pages that I have decided to work on.

I started with some gesso here and there, followed by random circles I painted on with Dr. Martin’s acrylic ink in Red Violet and Amsterdam acrylic paint in Greyish Blue.

From there I basically just smeared , dripped and painted layers of paint and ink-with some washi tape and random rubber stamps. I finished it with some artistic scribbles with a black uniball pen.

All in all it’s not my favorite,but it was fun.

Thanks for playing!
